[Bug 1247154] Re: ACPI battery: non-void init function not returning a value


This bug is awaiting verification that the kernel in -proposed solves
the problem. Please test the kernel and update this bug with the
results. If the problem is solved, change the tag 'verification-needed-
precise' to 'verification-done-precise'.

If verification is not done by 5 working days from today, this fix will
be dropped from the source code, and this bug will be closed.

Bug description:
  The drivers/acpi/battery.c init function starts with:

  static int __init acpi_battery_init(void)
  	if (acpi_disabled)
  [ ... ]

  This could cause problems because, if ACPI is disabled, the driver
  init function would return 0 (success) without being initialised.

  The following compiler warning is shown when compiling Precise kernel:

  /home/henrix/src/precise/ubuntu-precise/drivers/acpi/battery.c: In function 'acpi_battery_init':
  /home/henrix/src/precise/ubuntu-precise/drivers/acpi/battery.c:1172:3: warning: 'return' with no value, in function returning non-void [-Wreturn-type]
